If At First You Don't Suceed; Thai Thai Again!

by Tenina Holder

Sorry, its Friday afternoon at the end of a long week, and so I am not only tired, but silly to go along with it! Thai Beef Salad is one of my favorites and lately I have been on a mission to find a nice one in a restaurant that I could rely on to deliver the taste hit that I crave...no luck! So had to come up with my own, here it is. Although we have had nothing but rain here all week (mid November, what is going on??) I am primed and ready for some hot weather eating. Hope you enjoy this on a leisurely evening...cooking time of approximately 5 minutes...how much more leisurely could you get? Enjoy! Thai Beef Salad Marinade
